Canon 5D User Review

New User Review on the Canon EOS 5D

Canon EOS 5D Released

The Canon EOS 5D continues the tradition of Canon breaking the mould with just about every other DSLR they release. So what makes this latest addition to the EOS line so different?

The main thing is that it is the first DSLR with full frame that is affordable for the masses. However, with that sensor comes the need for glass...good glass! Check out our full review below.

The Wedding Season is Upon Us

Well, having already done a number of weddings this year already, the real wedding season here in Spain is about to start. Just in time to really test the Canon EOS 5D!

With 9 weddings in June alone and 3 or 4 a month after that, my time is going to be limited. It will be spent either on the job or in Photoshop...busy times ahead!

So much so, I am shipping the family back to the UK for a holiday to give me space to get on with it. Space without grubby little fingers switching the PC off at the most inopportune moment.

That is just the wife!

Wedding Photography in Spain

The pleasure of shooting weddings over here is that I get to really experiment with some amazing locations:

  • On a catamaran in Puerto Banus
  • In a Cave in Mijas
  • At a converted monastery in the countryside
  • Traditional and ancient churches in the smallest of Spanish pueblos.

Now I have beach weddings, weddings in luxury 5 star hotels and your typical registry office affairs to look forward to.

Once it has all died down at the end of the year and all prints have been safely posted or delivered, I will be putting my experiences of the past few years to good use.

Taking my experiences from just about any and every situation possible:

  • Wet, windy weddings in the UK
  • Brightest sunshine in Spain

...coupled with successful marketing and after sales. I will be putting it all of this in a new book in the New Year.

Wedding Photography eBook

It will cover all you need to know about starting a wedding photography business....

  • Where to start?
  • Getting a portfolio together.
